A quick question i currently use Outlook Express and i want to move onto Outlook 2002, but one annoying this when it starts it doesnt check send/receive straight away like express does, ive looked into all the options and settings but can only change it to one min ?

Is thier anyway i can get it to check the email etc, as soon as it loads ?

Many Thx in advance

I use Outlook and mine sends/receives as soon as it's open (although it's usually connected).
Go to Tools>>>Options>>>Mail Delivery tab, make sure Send messages immediately upon connection, is ticked. See if that does it for you.


I cant get that option either. I have Outlook 2002 and the only option I could find was to automatic send/receive when exiting or to send/receive every ? minutes. I can't find the option to make it send/receive when opening the application.


I'm not entirely sure that there is one :D trust microsoft to do something as stupid as take what was probably the most useful feature and remove it in the version you have to pay for

I'm not really sure if it's the same for Outlook 2002 (i'm using Outlook 2000), but for me the only way (that i know of) to make Outlook check my mail as soon as it loads, is to enable the 'send/receive every ..... minutes' option. I have cable so i always set it on 5 min. But when i still had a 56k modem i always checked my mail manualy. Or set it really high, like 300 min.

I think enabling the option 'Send immediately when connected' only means that if you press the send button, after writing a new mail, it will be send directly and not first to the Outbox. Which is nice if you have a 56k modem, because then you only have to dial-up one's an hour or so and send it all at the same time.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
